The 2014 EHF Cup Finals hosts Füchse Berlin will face Pick Szeged, while the 2003 EHF Champions League winners Montpellier Agglomeration HB will meet Romanian champions HCM Constanta after the draw at the Berlin TV Tower has set the semi-final pairings of the season-ending tournament in the Max-Schmeling-Halle.
Both semi-final games will be played on Saturday 17 May 2014, the 3/4 placement match and the EHF Cup final will follow on Sunday 18 May. The exact playing times will be released in due time.
Europe’s handball family comes to Berlin
“We will try and be good hosts, making the EHF Cup Finals a true family event for everyone participating,” Hanning added.
Over 6,000 tickets sold
More than 6,000 tickets have already been sold. Prices for tickets start €49 for Category 3 tickets. Category 2 costs €99, Category 1 is available for €199. Tickets are always valid for both playing days and can be purchased here.
"We are looking very much forward to two days of good entertainment and some great handball.”
Weighing more than 15 kg, the new trophy stands on 14 separate feet but only seven reach the bowl at the top, while seven stop half-way through, symbolising that eventually only one handball team will lift the trophy.
Furthermore, as a tribute to the hosting city Berlin and the bear in its coat of arms, a bear’s head ornaments the bowl’s base.
